Abstract

Winds blowing from the southeast along the only significant fetch into Auke Bay mixed nitrate into the photic zone from deeper in the water column; major summer phytoplankton blooms in the bay resulted. The wind-mixing effect could be monitored by measuring salinity changes in the water column caused by mixing of freshwater from the glacially originating Mendenhall River down into the water column.
